Helen, Georgia

Helen is a must visit in the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains. This Bavarian town has all you would expect - German food, beer, Octoberfest, music and more. With the start of the Chattahoochee River running right through town, tubing is a favorite outdoor adventure. Antiques to Zip Lines will complete your experience!

Helen, Georgia

Formerly a logging town that was in decline, the city resurrected itself by becoming a replica of a Bavarian alpine town, in the Appalachians instead of the Alps. This design is mandated through zoning first adopted in 1969, so that the classic south-German style is present on every building, even on the small number of national franchisees present (such as Huddle House and Wendy's).
